    INTRODUCTION Introduction As per as history of hospitality is concerned, the word hospitality is derived from the Latin word hospes, meaning “guest , visitor, or one who provides lodging for a guest or visitor.‖ In India,hospit ality is based on the principle ― AtithiDevoBhava” , meaning the guest is God. Hospitalitymarketing is unique because it deals with the tangible product, like a bed in the hotel or food in therestaurant, but it also deals with the intangible aspects of the hospitality and tourism industry.The first attempt of developing a new marketing mix for the hospitality industry was undertaken byLeo. M .Renaghan. According to him the hospitality marketing mix contain three major sub mixes-the product /service mix, the presentation mix, and the communication mix. To these we add one ofthe srcinal elements defined by Borden  –   Distribution.Hospitality Marketing: is illustrated as the process by which a service industry caters service to its target customers by the various offerings the major responsibility of hospitability service  provider isto create unique mix of service offering to cater the value demanded by the customer.―First, you need to identify all the key activities involved in creating and delivering the service inquestion and then specify the linkages between these activities. Initiall y, it‘s best to keep activities relatively aggregated in order to define the big picture.~ Christopher Lovelock, E. Jerome McCarthy  in 1960 was the first to gave the concept of marketing Mix which demanded and gain attention in late 70‘s when the marketers acknowledge the upgradation of the marketing mix.This led to the creation of the Extended Marketing Mix in 1981 by Bernard H. Booms and Mary J. Bitner‟s  insight in relation which added 3 new elements    to the 4 P‘s Principle. This now allowed theextended Marketing Mix to include  products that are services and not just physical component. There have been alternatives to the traditional marketing mix offered in the marketing literature in response to differences that exist between tangible products (i.e., goods) and services. Services have four majorcharacteristics that affect the design of marketing programs: intangibility, inseparability, perishability, and variability. These characteristics led to the creation of an expanded marketing mix for all services with 7 P‘s -the srcinal 4 plus physical evidence, participants/people, and  process.
